have any poll numbers in it that doesn't talk about florida, that doesn't talk about virginia, that doesn't talk about ohio, i think it's proof of this campaign is in trouble also that mention of the word significantly that things haven't changed significantly. i think that word in itself suggests that things have sort of changed in the is sense that they are gelled in a lot of these variables in this campaign are locked in place and locked in place against mitt romney. >> well, patricia, clearly when you get those kind of polls and they don't have florida and other things in it nia-malika is raising, fact checking doesn't matter but why do states matter? when you look at the cnn poll, when they raise a question, who do you think will win, 59% think president obama will win and 37% says romney when you raise a question of who connects better to middle class and women, more in touch with problems faces the middle class, 57 to 37. these are significant gaps in these areas. if you add this to that bounce, does this look real to you? >> well, you know what, that cnn poll is so imp
helped virginia democrat jim webb defeat george allen in the 2006 senate race made famous by allen's macaque comment. he steered mark warner into the virginia governor's mansion in 2001. now, mud cat is setting his sights on ousting powerful house republican leader eric cantor. if he succeeds, it could be one of the biggest political upsets of the year. mud cat, thanks for being here tonight. >> rev, it's wonderful being with you. >> now, let me ask you, how are these romney tapes changing the political conversation? >> well, you've been in campaigns before, rev, and the one thing you always want to establish is us versus them brand. and me, one thing he has done is he has firmly branded himself as them. you know, i couldn't believe it. i knew that he was an elitist, but romney doesn't have a whole lot of street smarts and people are talking about this secret fundraiser and there was 150 people there with cell phones. and where you and i come from, we call that street smarts not to say something so ridiculous in front of that many people. >> no doubt about it. well, one of the thin
chance that they think they have in places like ohio, florida, and virginia, is squeezing every single vote out of the far right base that they can manage, which is kind of the bush strategy in ohio against john kerry in 2004 using the -- you know, the state proposition against guy marriage and other things to get out all of those mega churches and the far right vote. they are just going to keep finding these fake, phony issues and they are not going to be dictated to by fact checkers. >> well, joan walsh and david corn, i think the sad part is the step over four american bodies to do this. this is also despicable. thank you for joining me tonight. >> thanks, reverend al. >> thank you. >>> shoot first, aim later is how president obama described governor romney. so it's no surprise the bush ies have his back. donald rumsfeld is leading the defense. >>> plus, it's the burning question. why is governor romney doing this? why is he so desperate? we know why. tonight, some big news in the swing states just came out. >>> and fireworks inside the courtroom. the voter i.d. law goes to the penn
and on the campaign trail in virginia, president obama seemed offended by it. >> i don't think we can get very far with leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of victims, who never take responsibility for their own lives. i know. i travel around a lot in virginia and across this country. i don't meet a lot of victims. i see hardworking virginians, i see students trying to work their way through college. i see single moms like my mom putting in overtime to raise their kids right. i see senior citizens saving for retirement your entire lives. like jim whip said, i see a whole bunch of veterans who have served this country with bravery and distinction and soldiers who defend our freedom every single day and i see those military families who are wondering whether their loved ones are going to come back home safe and sound. that's who i see. >> that's who you see. a vision of an america united by values, not divided by wealth. it's a passionate message and polls show it's resonating with the american people. just take a look at this. it's remarkable. here's how the race looked before romney's
was at his event in virginia and he said, if i become president -- and then he said, when i become president. you've got to look at these blind quotes, unnamed quotes coming from people on his campaign staff and they are really murderous things that they are say. he'd be a great commander in chief. he's just a lousy candidate. you already see his own people getting their disstrans from him. i think that's more indicative than any other individual poll. >> let me show you something very interesting, krystal. i'm going to give you an example of how his message is really not resonating. look at this graphic about the most watched youtube videos. president obama's dnc speech, 4.9 million people went to. clinton's dnc speech, 3.95 million went to. romney's 47% video, the lead video, 47%, 3.4 million people went to it cht clint eastwood's speech with the empty chair, 3.2 million. michelle obama's dnc speech, 3.2 million. romney's rnc speech, 1.1 million. >> that's pretty unbelievable chart right there. when you're losing to clint eastwood's empty chair speech by 2.1 million people, that's unreal.
carolina, ohio, and virginia. but he's not advertising in michigan, pennsylvania, and wisconsin. coming out of the convention, is romney's path to victory more narrow than before? and must he win ohio to win this, dana? >> reverend, it was always fairly narrow. we tend to look at this in national polls. when you look at the battle ground polls, it was already going to be a difficult path for romney. and it appears the last couple of weeks have made that more difficult still. now, you may see a state that he appears to be pulling out of pushes into somewhere else. you see obama going into a place like georgia where you wouldn't expect democrats to be spending any money. there are any number of things that can pivot between now and election day. i don't think you want to say it's all about ohio. but clearly the way you arrange these building blocks for romney, he has fewer possibilities right now than he did a couple weeks ago. >> now, patricia, one of the things we saw strong in the president's speech last night was foreign policy. and there were a lot of people critical including myself of
to under his views today, governor romney in the swing state of virginia, removing to restrict a woman's right to choose. the state up held regulations that could force many women's health clinics to shut their doors. these are the real values he stands for. just because he didn't say it doesn't mean he doesn't believe it. watch what they do, not just what they say. joining me now is frank schafer, columnist for "the huffington post" and author of crazy for god and washington correspondent for "the guardian." thanks for joining me. >> thank you. >> anna marie, let me start with you. paul ryan is hiding his views, it seems. you know, he didn't go into a lot of detail today but clearly being at this conference stating the views of his, let's say, the crowd of speakers that were with him, and what he's advocated before clearly is a very open confirmation of some of the most conservative social views on the political landscape today. >> it's true. paul ryan is actually pretty far off of the mainstream when it comes to his social view and at least we know that about him, i have to say. that
, let me explain to you what joe biden said in virginia today as he took on romney on this 47%. look at this. >> he attacks 47% of the american people who he says pay no federal taxes. and he attacks -- he, romney, attacking someone on taxes? that's like me attacking someone for being passionate about politics. >> and even chris christie, the keynote speen at republican convention, he said they've had a bad last week and they've got a lot of ground to cover now. he says, i'm quoting him, we had a bad week. if the election were going to be held tomorrow, that would be a problem but there's a lot of ground to cover in the next 42 days. i don't know how you put a good light on this one. >> well, it's going to be hard. listen, the republicans are running for cover. peggy noon is saying it's calamitous. former political director of the republican party in iowa said that if ryan wants to run after this campaign, he's going to have to get rid of the stench of mitt romney. i mean, these are things -- don't oeven to want say this, okay? all you have to do is repeat what the republicans are sa
committee in virginia has been ordered by the state gop to take down offensive photos of president obama photoshopped to make him look like a witch doctor and a cave man and this one showing the president begging the country, come on, baby, give me one more chance. as we went on air tonight, most of those photographs are still on that republican committee's web page. joining me now is joe madison, nationally syndicated radio host of "morning's with madison" and ana marie cox, reporter for the guardian. thanks for being here. >> thanks for having me, reverend. >> thank you. >> newt gingrich, joe, says president obama is a false president. what's behind that attack? >> well, i don't know. i asked -- you know, ask the folks in the middle east, you know. ask the navy s.e.a.l.s who helped to get the most wanted terrori terrorists. it's like the three stooges. john, newt, and donald trump. really, like the three stooges on steroids and this is, again, cold. when you hear lazy, that's the kind of code word that they would say about african-americans in the '60s, the '50s, and decades before. th

the political equivalent of a sledge hammer. in virginia today, the president was swinging it again at mr. romney's view of america. >> i don't believe we can get very far with leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of victims, who think that they're not interested in taking responsibility for their own lives. i don't see a lot of victims in this crowd today. i see hard working virginiians. nobody believes that anyone's entitled to success in this country. we don't believe the government should be helping people who refuse to help themselves, but we do believe in something called opportunity. the values we believe in don't just belong to workers or businesses, the 53% or the 47%, the rich or the poor, the 1%, the 99% -- these are american values. they belong to all of us. >> they belong to all of us. suddenly, the talk about taxes doesn't seem so bad, and that political sledgehammer was passed to joe biden today. for the first time, he weighed in on the tape. it was classic joe biden. >> he thinks these folks believe they're entitled, that they've become dependent. they see them
